This vintage photograph from 1998 was taken at Saguaro Lake, Arizona, a reservoir along Salt River, and shows (left-to-right) me, my brother Mike and a friend, jumping from 20-feet above the water. Fun times!

Here’s a photograph of me that I’m including for Throwback Thursday, despite the fact that I took it only yesterday. Does that count? Hmm…
Anyway, the cool metal print on the wall behind me is an artwork entitled “Journey“, painted by my talented friend, Tiffany Arp-Daleo. Please visit her site, thanks!

This is me at 20 years old, circa 1984. I don’t know what I weighed at the time of this photograph, but certainly much less than I do now! 😆
Once upon a time…
According to the local Olan Mills Photography studio, I was the most adorable baby of the month. After that, it was all downhill! 😆😂😜
In the kitchen, yesterday, with graphic effects added this morning. 👽 If you enjoy laughter, then you should try my lasagna…
Drip Drip Drip
It’s not always possible to correctly anticipate when a waterfall is either flowing fully, or nearly dry. Without live stream cameras on site, one must consider recent weather reports citing rainfall, the time of season, and other personal accounts provided online. One such source of information is alltrails.com.
However, there are times – case in point – when photographs uploaded by park visitors were filmed at a much earlier point, absent notation. Having recently observed pictures indicative of substantial water present, I was certainly disappointed after a rather strenuous hike along a very rocky trail to discover scant water. Live and learn.
Nevertheless, an earlier visit to Foster Falls, and subsequent hikes to Lower & Upper Greeter Falls, the Stone Door, and Laurel Falls, each contributed to a fantastic day – and very sore muscles this morning!
This was my second visit to Denny Cove Falls, so I’ve included a video (below) from my earlier hike in March 2020 for contrast. I’ll also post more photographs from yesterday in the days ahead…
Looking for another photograph to use as my new gravatar, I’d hoped to find one with fewer scars and less than 57 wrinkles… 😆
Hike To Waterfall
I left Knoxville, Tennessee this morning at 5:30 a.m. and arrived at the trailhead for Spruce Flats Falls one hour later. Located in the Tremont section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, near Cades Cove, it stands 30-feet tall and can be enjoyed by hiking a moderately difficult trail of 2 miles out and back. I’ll add more photographs, soon. In the meantime, check out these prints in my gallery at Pixels.
P.S.: notice that I’m wearing a WordPress t-shirt 🤪👍

This contemporary digital art features a three dimensional perspective from a close-up photograph of a flagstone wall. It’s available on a variety of prints and other items in my shops at Redbubble and Pixels. Thanks for visiting.
Happy Palindrome Day
Actually, every day this month from 1/20/21 through 1/29/21 are palindrome dates; that is, each date reads the same forward or backward – 12021, 12121…12921.
There are also many examples of palindrome sentences. One of the most famous is –
A man, a plan, a canal, Panama!
